“In this series we bring you our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions which we personally recommend”
A long time favourite with a new look, we welcome back Evolve, TIME and McWatters and welcome newcomer Chronos to our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions. Now under the umbrella of TIME Family of Wines you will find there is something for every wine lover on your list and a price point that doesn’t disappoint.
Today’s recommendations are from Evolve…
Evolve 2020 Spontaneity
Life is too short not to be spontaneous. This white blend of 50% Pinot Gris, 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Ortega is light and fruity with a slightly sweet finish. Chilled on a patio with your tribe is perfection in a glass.
Evolve 2018 Momento
Moments are created when we share in great wine and great friends.
This wine is a blend of 45% Cabernet Franc, 45% Merlot, and 10% Syrah; aged separately in American and French oak for 14 months before being blended.
Evolve Pink Effervescence
Grapes were hand-sorted then whole bunch pressed. This wine is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 28% Pinot Blanc. Fermented components separately with some lees stirring on the Pinot Blanc. Finished with a dash of Syrah to give the pink color.

When the days feel too long, or when the good times aren’t long enough. The bubbles perfectly match a day in the sun, a meeting of happy minds and full hearts, and bubbles in baths. Pink Effervescence is the shining bright spot as the sun sets or wishing the day could last a bit longer.
